Malcolm Lowry

a.k.a. Clarence Malcolm Lowry

Author Code: ECML

Born: Jul. 28, 1909 - New Brighton, England

Died: Jun. 26, 1957 - Ripe, Sussex, England

Educated at the Leys School in Cambridge and St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, Lowry graduated in 1931. Between these schools, Lowry had worked as a deck-hand on a tramp steamer and this experience at sea led to his first novel, Ultramarine, which appeared in 1933. He subsequently travelled in Spain, France, New York and Hollywood before settling with his second wife, Margerie Bonner, in a squatter community in Vancouver, Canada in 1940. After several rejections by publishers, he finally published his second novel, Under the Volcano, in 1947. The work was a masterpiece and is ranked among the best of twentieth century novels, reaching the top of the best-seller list. It was also made into a film directed by John Huston in 1984. Lowry had begun drinking when he was 14 and in later life it affected his mental and physical health. His marriage to Bonner was a love-hate relationship, which even included some attempts by Lowry to strangle her. Lowry's death was suspicious, but has been suggested that it was suicide. The coroner recorded death by misadventure with the cause of death being barbituate poisoning coupled with excessive amounts of alcohol which caused Lowry to inhale his own vomit. Lowry's other works were all published posthumously from his manuscripts and the editing of his wife. They include Hear Us O Lord From Heaven Thy Dwelling Place (1961), Selected Poems (1962), Dark as the Grave Wherein My Friend is Laid (1968), Lunar Caustic (1968) and October Ferry to Gabriola (1970).
